Jesse Alexander was at National Maker Faire earlier this year in June and compiled their experiences here at Emergency Cloud System. The site includes not only a reflection on their proposal and observations, but also recommendations for other Hams to consider for future events.
“What do you do when the lights go out and cell phones don’t work? I’ll demonstrate how you can help your community by providing communications during disasters. And I’ll also show you some of the new Ham stuff!”
I will bring a demonstration of Amateur Radio operation that will include UHF/VHF voice and digital WI-FI mesh operations during an emergency. I’ll be bringing my station and antennas, mesh nodes, a server and and some applications that demonstrate High Speed Multmedia Mesh operations. I’ll also have information on hand about how to get started in ham radio and emergency service organizations like the National Weather Service’s SKYWARN, Amateur Radio Emergency Service and Radio Amateur Emergency Service, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).
